Ladies Make Match Interesting, but Fall Short
Sunday, November 16, 2008

SHREVEPORT – Freshman Jennifer Kunze had eight kills, while classmates Christina Golden and Brianna Kern tallied six in Sunday straight set Summit League loss to South Dakota State (18-25, 11-25, 19-25).


In the first set, Centenary (4-26, 0-16) had game-high 12 kills, but five service and two reception errors helped give SDSU (10-17, 8-8) the win. Golden led the Ladies offense with four kills, while freshman Jaclyn Lopez gave a set-high 10 assists.


Nine attack errors did not do Centenary any favors in game two, but Kunze did smack down three kills. The Ladies were down 5-2, but got the game within one just a few points later on one of Kunze’s kills.


Centenary took advantage of 13 Jackrabbit errors early in the final set, but offensively the Ladies could not pull away. Early in the set, SDSU and Centenary went toe-to-toe, but a 7-1 run midway through the game helped give the Jackrabbits a win.


Playing in her final game for Centenary, senior Ashlee Freeman had five kills and two block assists to add to her already impressive resume.


This was the final game of the season for Centenary, and it will be back on the court in August
